11 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Cheri Isaacs on January 26, 2002
Format: Hardcover
With this colorful, clever, and surprisingly informative book, history leaps off the page like a bucking bronco at the Fort Worth Rodeo. Snappy dialogue between the two cartoon characters--Sam and Meredith, your "guides" through this diverse land--cooks up an easily digestible version of Texas history without being dishonest (for example, a few paragraphs are devoted to the haunting legacy of the Native Americans who were here first). This book reads easier than cold lemonade on a sweltering day in August. You (and your kids!) will love it!

8 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Grendel2009 on June 18, 2002
Format: Hardcover
I just bought this book for one of the young people in my life and I am having a hard time giving it to her as I like it so much! It has really cool facts about Texas! I also like that it mentions the best university in Texas (UT) and not that other school. My only complaint is that it is a little harsh on Houston!

Format: Hardcover
I taught 4th grade this past year, so I held the privilege of being a Texas History teacher. My students loved to pick up this book to read in their spare time. Because it has a different shape than most books, it is interesting to younger readers. When they start to read the facts, they learn a lot quickly. It doesn't give a whole lot of information about each topic, but in a fun manner, explains why Texas is so important. It mixes history with modern day so students explore by region instead of time periods. My copy looks a little worn, but that's always an indicator that the book is actually a good one. I would buy for any elementary student(3rd and up?)/classroom.

I purchased this book for my 10-year-old son. We both enjoyed it very much, and even I, a native Texan, learned things about our state. The author does a good job of mixing facts with enough whimsy and fun to entertain children and adults alike. I especially appreciated his sensitive handling of Texas's past, particularly as it regarded President Kennedy's assassination.

These State Shape books are my favorite gift for children--and a favorite FUN read for me at 70 years of age! One can learn more in less time than with any of my other state books and DVDs. The children I have given them to enjoy them, which is more than I can say for many other gifts. The author is dynamic and interesting.
